Fantastic Coures

Just takes golf to another level, the staffs service is second to none, when you arrive they take your clubs out of the car then park your car and put your clubs onto your buggy, word of warning stay out the rough.

A superb modern course

Has a variety of holes with direction & elevation changes. Oozes class. Kept in great condition. A must play parkland in the South East of England.

The grove is a full day experience. From the moment you arrive you are looked after by helpful staff

The course is always in fantastic condition no matter when you play. It’s a tough layout but in a good way - it’s still enjoyable - but you will 3 or even 4 putt from the wrong place on a sloppy fast green

Expensive but great as a once or twice a year treat

Highly recommend adding this to the must play list

Top 100

A real treat to play a top course, a shame the greens had been dressed that morning, leaving them harder to read. A tight course means accurate placement is essential

Played in a society event which had been rescheduled after cancellation due to frost in December.
The course was in good condition although the greens looked a bit patchy but played well. Greens were fairly fast despite recent top dressing and rain during the previous day. Several greens were quite undulating and punishing for a slightly misplaced approach shot. Good service from the golf staff including reception, valet parking, shoe cleaning and massage chairs. Complimentary tees, ball markers and yardage charts. Good carvery food although drinks were quite expensive.
Worth the expense for an occasional outing.

Millionaire's Golf

We were the only two ball on the course, lovely friendly staff.
It unfortunately started snowing when we were on the 11th hole, gradually getting worse,
couldn't find our balls after having played our second shots down the 12th.
turned the buggy around and headed in only to be met near the 18th to be advised the the head green keeper had decided to close the course. A shame we couldn't finish but you can't blame the course for the weather.
